Probably to the horror of my boyfriend, I spent an hour yesterday reading along as Paul Pastor of Chas Schwartz & Son jewelers talked about engagement rings. He really covered it all—what cuts of diamonds are the prettiest, why palladium (cheaper than platinum!) is a great choice, where to find vintage rings, and even what to do if you and your partner aren’t “ring people.”
Before you set off on your holiday weekend road trip (good luck!), check out the transcript of Paul’s chat here.
